Hate advertising? Make better ads.

Journal Entry: Wed May 19, 2010, 1:20 PM

I was invited to an exhibition called "Impact" at Istanbul Bilgi University yesterday. After the opening, there was the screening of a documentary film called "Art & Copy". Frankly, it was more than I hoped! I loved the idea of it, and took some notes about it as well. Strongly recommend it to you guys, watch, and share it as much as you can! (: special thanks to Mr. Atilla Aksoy for the organization. It is good to know that there are still such academicians who value their students' education more than anything...

ART & COPY is a powerful new film about advertising and inspiration. Directed by Doug Pray  (SURFWISE, SCRATCH, HYPE!), it reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time -- people who've profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry. Exploding forth from advertising's "creative revolution" of the 1960s, these artists and writers all brought a surprisingly rebellious spirit to their work in a business more often associated with mediocrity or manipulation: George Lois, Mary Wells, Dan Wieden, Lee Clow, Hal Riney and others featured in ART & COPY were responsible for "Just Do It," "I Love NY," "Where's the Beef?," "Got Milk," "Think Different," and brilliant campaigns for everything from cars to presidents. They managed to grab the attention of millions and truly move them. Visually interwoven with their stories, TV satellites are launched, billboards are erected, and the social and cultural impact of their ads are brought to light in this dynamic exploration of art, commerce, and human emotion.
